Melody Walters--July Shining Star for Pella Regional

Melody Walters, July Shining StarPELLA, Iowa— Melody Walters, Executive Assistant, was selected as July Shining Star by co-workers at Pella Regional Health Center.

Walters, resident of Knoxville, was nominated based on Attitude, Appearance, Commitment, and Sense of Ownership.

Excerpts from her nomination:
“Melody has a position that takes on a multitude tasks that others around the facility may not know what to do with or don't want to do; and she does them all willingly and thoroughly. She is very prompt and attentive to detail, which is why so many people go to her for answers and to get things done. One of her jobs requires completion of paperwork for insurance companies each time a physician or physician extender adds a location or moves to another location. This job alone is extremely time consuming and detailed, but Melody manages it very well along with all of her other job responsibilities. Her position is very behind-the-scenes many times, but without her, many areas would not run nearly as smoothly.”

Shining Star is a reward and recognition program at Pella Regional designed to acknowledge an employee each month that demonstrates outstanding standards of behavior and inspires others to do their best.

Walters will receive a $100 gift, a plaque, and will automatically be included in the Shining Star of the Year award.
